to the foundation's intent to sue the city for its city seal which contained a cross and a billboard that included elements of that city seal that was in a city park. mr. speaker, this is an outrage. the seal and sign are harming no one. they are widely embringsed by the citizens of bulla kansas. it contains the words values and progressive ideas. unfortunately in this case progressive ideas are making a war on traditional values and it's high time for that to stop. some will claim the first amendment to the constitution requires the cross be removed from this seal and sign. that's hogwash. the first amendment begins with the words congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise thereof. in this instance congress made no law. for that reason alone the first amendment does not apply. furthermore, it cannot be set that this simple seal in any way is an establishment of religion. there is no officially supported secretary or denomination in the manner, this is not in any way an endorsement of any particular religion or any religious denomination. in short the first amendment as originally wr
, they took every rate and did it two years. this is not a matter if republicans are saying new york city we're going to vote no on everything. what we're doing is voting yes on every single tax rate going up. the third part is trying to reduce spending. last year during the budget agreements, we agreed that we would find a way to cut $1.2 trillion in spending. so that's still on the table right now. if it's not done, there's across-the-board spending cuts and a lot of americans say that's the wrong way to do it. >> you know what, there's an interesting poll that comes out of bloomberg and the question is about a mandate. i thought this was interesting. obama's re-election, the question goes, gives him a mandate to raise taxes on those making $250,000 plus. and the answer was yes, 65% of people polled said yes, in fact they do believe that he has a mandate there. with that polling, how does that make you change how you see your position as you go into the negotiation along with the fact that everybody's taxes are going up anyway at the end of this year? no matter what happens, you can do abs
